The best trench coat is a lifelong keeper. It’s the kind of trusty wardrobe staple you know is ready and waiting whenever you need it, but it doesn’t vie for your attention at all times (or get upset when you shove it to the back of the rail for a few months).
It took me a long time to find my holy grail of outerwear. My perfect trench coat arrived early in 2015 when Finery launched, and I scooped up the double-face crêpe trench the brand continues to riff on today. I still dig it out every spring, and it’s already made a 2022 appearance or two. It’s made of a weighty fabric in a flattering fit with a slight ‘70s vibe and an overall finish that looks way beyond its high-street price tag.
